Academic Experience: Graphic Design is the only thing the Creative Center does, with some focused on subfields within the field (photography, illustration, marketing, etc.). The school's director, a successful graphic designer himself, created the school with the main focus on training young designer to be prepared and full of knowledge that was important to those hiring graphic designers. A three year Bachelor program, you start your first year, first semester, with just traditional art before come in second semester learning the computer side of things, which in the foundation for all of second and third year. The CC also has a class on the Fundamentals of Communications, and you give countless presentations, because this is a greatly important part of the job. You get the chance at mock interviews and real on campus interviews! Along with the chance to get your portfolio reviewed by professionals in the field, with events like Meet the Pros, a two day seminar where you go with your classmates to listen to a whole bunch of professionals in the graphic design field, and at the end of the second day, a massive portfolio review. Along with an on campus Portfolio Review night, again, with real professional coming in to take the time to review your portfolio and give you the opportunity for feedback.

At the CC, you are given project after project, several major projects happening within the same time and may even be due the same week! Classes are five times a week, from 8:30-3:30, each day a different class. It's very easy to get left behind if you don't do the required work for that day. Almost all projects are to be turned in for a pro-review and handled back with corrections to make, in hopes that all projects will be worthy of landing in your portfolio.

There are several bulletins through the school listing not only scholarships, but jobs and internship opportunities as well. And a weekly email sent out on Mondays about job openings and internships in the Omaha area.

Overall Experience: It was great, all the teachers care about you doing well and want you to exceed. It only becomes a problem when you start to fall behind, because you are handed project after project with no pause; the Creative Center is suppose to mimic a work environment. Because the CC only focuses on graphic design, you really get loaded with so much information about the field and all it's subfields. You pull out more work then you would attending another college or university is half the time! And the quality of work the CC students produce speaks for itself. Taking trips to the printers, design firms/ad agencies, along with trips to the art museums and the zoo for live drawing, you're not just stuck inside a classroom all day. The CC also gives you opportunities to meet with professionals in the field (besides your teachers, that must have a minimum of 15 years in the field in order to teach), with events like Meet the Pros, Portfolio Review Night, and give you the chance at mock-interviews and real on-campus interviews, too. Meeting with the pros in the field and getting feedback on my portfolio was by far my favorite experience attending the Creative Center. You also get a chance to enter competitions such as the Addys, and the AIGA, well known awards in the graphic design field (not to mention the CC is loaded with awards from those competitions, student sector.). If I had a choice to attend this school again, I would, if I knew graphic design is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. It's a great school for those who are certain that this field is what they want to make a career in.

Tuition & Financial Aid: It wasn't at all easy for me to get student loans, but the school was worth it, from what I can tell so far.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: My school is based on trying to focus you on things to get out into the real graphic design business. We really don't have an activity center but we do have a library that has been very helpful sometimes and the faculty do make up days to have fun on like halloween for example.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: This school focuses on what you need to strive in the world of graphic design, freelance, and managing your own business.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: The print quality is far more amazing as you progress through school. The computer lab gives you quiet time during times when you need it, the network is stable and you can always count on your assignments to be where they are suppose to be. The need for a personal computer is mandatory. This school sets you up for success.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education I am receiving from The Creative Center is definitely worth the money I'm paying for. We get the latest programs for our laptops. The financial aid department was very helpful for my first semester there. They helped me find the right loans to take out since I was a little late to apply for any scholarships.

Academic Experience: I like how one-on-one this school is. My class has under 50 students in it. We are allowed to take projects up to our teachers and ask them for their opinions. We learn what we need to improve on and what our strong points are. There's always room for improvement in whatever we do and our teachers help us with that.

Academic Experience: I'm a graphic design major, it's hard to answer this question, I attend the Creative Center, it is a private college specifically geared toward obtaining a degree in graphic design, no filler classes or funny business. A typical class day is set up to mimic a work day and work environment, I take one class a day for 8 hours a day. The day starts with lecture, break, lab, lunch, lecture, break, lab. It's nice but somedays the works load is very overwhelming and it would seem that the professors always happen to give the most work on the say given week.

Online Courses: As far as the ease of this program I think that the work load is substantially equal to my other collage classes the only difference being in the time allowed to complete the assignment, and the ease and ability of working ahead. I don't really interact with my professor, not because they wouldn't but because I haven't needed to, I suppose that speaks on the ease of using the only class program.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I'm really graduated yet, so I can't say much expect for the previous third years have all obtained a job only a few were unable to find work because there was none or the work wasn't what they intended it to be.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: It's not flexible at all, classes are a fulltime commitment. So juggling a job, personal events and schedule is difficult to maintain. Depending on the school credits you earned only some will be accepted, which is a negative because it feels that the work and time put into those credits felt like they were for nothing.

4 College Senior

Student Body: The Creative Center is one the most diverse, open-minded, entertaining college that I attended. I'm satisfied with the learning atmosphere,
over the two years I been here I've learned more about Design, Computer Graphics, and Illustration. It is fast pass environment and is not for the weak of heart, students that attend here know what they want and work hard to achieve their desired goals. The students are not serious all the time, there is time for socialization, meeting new people, developing friendships, and the staff know how to have fun on the holidays and post various events, jobs, and internships to occupy the students. So it's no snooze festival over here, there is always something new to see or learn about. The only negative I'd have to say is that they don't teach on animation much, they'll touch base on the basics but that's it. Though the education is good and students are getting careers in the field.
